YES, I WANT TO GIVE MORE!
WATCH PASTOR RICK’S MORE CHALLENGE
HEAR HOW OTHERS HAVE BEEN IMPACTED
During the last year, we’ve celebrated 44 baptisms – hearing one story after another of radical transformation in Christ. Perfect. Our church is growing through transformation, not just transfer. We are seeing people who haven’t attended church come to KNOW Jesus in a new and personal relationship, GROW in that relationship, and GO out to advance His Kingdom. It’s Kingdom growth with redemption stories.
But it’s not enough. We want more. There are lives at stake. More need to hear about our great God. More need freed from the bonds of religion. More need freed from the bonds of sin, guilt, shame, and death. We love what is happening at Redemption, and we want to throw more logs on the fire, so that more can be warmed by the glow.
We’ve maxed out our worship space. Our parking has been expanded once, and we’re out of space again. We’re doing everything we can to maximize our current facility. Sadly, we’ve seen people come on our property and drive away because they can’t find a parking spot or a seat. Yes, it’s inconvenient to us. But “our people” tend to stay and figure it out. It’s new visitors that skip out. Those are potential redemption stories. Those are potential baptism stories. We can’t continue to let that happen. Thus, we want to build MORE to allow MORE space for MORE people.
The cost of this expansion project is $4,200,000. Once we factor in paying off our current mortgage, savings we have to spend on the project, and our ability to borrow, we at least need to raise $300,000 more. Of course, the more we raise, the less debt we have, freeing us to more Kingdom work. But we at least need commitments for $300,000 before we can even begin. Meanwhile, more people keep coming. So, for the good of our mission, we really need to get moving.
